*private*

With the war coming to an end, post war analysis became the priority. Overall the operations were a success and operated as expected however it became clear that aerial supremacy, whilst achieved, came at a cost higher than expected. A collective decision was reached to create a joint program, tasked with developing a new aerial supremacy fighter.

To achieve this goal, an new organisation, FP Aviation has been created to manage the program.

The UFE and Omniscient Empire would be the main participanpants in the program, developing the avionics and airframe respectively however most of the FP would be contributing something.

OOC: We'll be jointly developing a new supremacy fighter in this thread.

Hanoi National Research Lab had been working on creating a Generation 7 Avionics system for the new fighter. The first task was the micronization of the equipment. The chip set needed to be contained on a much smaller area in order to accommodate for greater processing power that these avionics would need to handle.

Two Tahoan corporations, Boeing and Lockheed Martin, will be participating in the program. Most nations in the world use aircraft designed by these two corporations, including many nations Air Forces which use the F-22, F-35 and F/A-18 model fighters.

The two corporations will be working to develop an advanced new engine system, incorporating the latest thrust vectoring and microthrusters, giving an aircraft practical 360 degree movement. The possibility for a VTOL version is in the works as well.

I see this as nothing more than paper tigers baring their claws.

Tunsheim will not be contributing any aircraft or pilots. Why should we show off our superior aeronautical technology and secret flight maneuvers? For you to attempt to try to reverse engineer said resources?

No, thank you. You tin pot dictators can show off your toys to one another while the Tunsheim Luftwuffe patrols our skies at home like it should.

I was unaware you were a member of Ferrous Pacific. Perhaps you should keep your nose out of the affairs of others with your snide comments before your betters teach you a lesson about "superior aeronautical technology".

The Governor could be heard from outside the closed doors of a private meeting room roaring with laughter, stating, "I like to think I'm at least a platinum pot dictator. Their aerospace technology isn't worth the toilet paper I use in my vacation home...its one-ply."

The Commonwealth has assembled the team that developed the modifications for the F-22X, F-23X, and F-35X and is preparing to ship them over to the UFE as part of the collaborative work effort.

The Micronization of the circuit boards was completed. This allowed for a 76% increase in computing power over Generation 6 Avionics. Using this space, the speed for lock ons would be lowered as well as the overall sensor sensitivity and detection ranges. This next step was sent to the team at Qinghua University and Hanoi National Research Laboratory for work.

The specifications given called for an advanced semi-stealth design featuring forward cannard, delta wing design for high speed and maneuvrability.

[1]Specifications, design and planning

[2]Scaled tests

[3]Materials selection and development

[4]Concept airframe

[5]Full Scale testing

[6]Refinement

Having finally completed the planning, scaled testing begun with all manner of testing taking place on the scale replicas.

Engineers at Northrop Grumman Aerospace have made a technical breakthrough with thrust vectoring. Along with advanced, 90o nozzles capable of influencing the yaw and pitch of the aircraft, newly developed Fluid Injection Nozzles can divert thrust via fluid effects. Tests show that air forced into a jet engine exhaust stream can deflect thrust up to 15 degrees. Such nozzles are desirable for their lower mass and cost (up to 50% less), lessened inertia (for faster, stronger control response), lesser complexity (mechanically simpler, no moving parts or surfaces) and smaller radar cross section for stealth.

Research into the applicability of microthrusters in combat aircraft is ongoning.

Boeing and Lockheed Martin are working on an engine capable of delivering the neccessary requirements for speed, range and performance. Eight possible designs are under consideration and will be developed fully for full-scale testing.

The UFE has sent private observers to work with the Tahoeans on the new engine designs. This is both for upgrading the F-50 and F-47 and for concentrating on the new fighter's avionics and $@pit systems at such high speeds. UFE engineers will be conducting thorough tests to determine what levels of calibration will be necessary with these new engines.

Classified Development

Adjustments have been completed. The new helmet has begun testing with both new B models of the F-47 and F-50 and with the simulator for the new prototype fighter. Advanced displays and support equipment allow pilots to engage in higher G-force situations and be able to engage in air to air at much higher speeds. Additionally the system is being transferred into the Oracle Eye air-to-ground systems.

Research has begun into developing countermeasure systems, as well as defeating enemy defensive systems. Additionally testing has begun on new advanced anti-air missiles with superior kill ranges, velocity, and manuverability, as well as resistance to countermeasures. These new systems will be joint-naboo UFE in origin as they integrate the latest in UFE avionics, with Naboo's proven record of having the best anti-air (both ground and air) missiles in the world.

Much progress had been made on the airframe with stages one through to four complete, with five and six simultaneously underway and nearing completion. It was ahead of schedule and would be ready for the other components to be fitted into the frame as they were completed.

Test 1 Engine Testing

Tibet, UFE

It was a dawn as two teams were rushing from their fighters, the three hundred kilometer radius had been cleared out and the quarintine of Tibetan air space remained in effect. Pilots from the Naboo 1st Squadron 2nd Wing and the 2nd Imperial Guard Squadron 3rd Wing of the United Francoist Empire were taking off from two bases on either side of the large area.

The units would begin field testing the units engines over Qinghai and Tibetan territory running exercises for testing the engines top speed, super cruise, thrust vectoring, and air frame endurance at super sonic speeds.

Testing Complete:

Unit Name: F-65 Vanguard

Avionics: Generation 7 (S) (shorter lock on times, longer range, defeats stealth, also advanced jamming of enemy missiles)

* Crew: 1

Length: 19.8m

* Wingspan: 15.2m

* Height: 4.5m

* Powerplant: 2x 190KN 3D thrust vectoring turbofans

Performance:

* Maximum safe speed: Mach 3.1

* Service ceiling 23,000m

* Maximum g-load: -4.0/+10.5 g

Armament

* Guns: 1 x 30 mm cannon in starboard wing root, 640 rounds

* Air to Air: a variety of highly effective long to short range missiles will be available

* Air to Ground: A limited variety of guided munitions available.

Units showed themselves to be capable of high maneuvering more so than any unit they went up against, and their air frames were able to endure intense G-forces. Their large size gave them significant fire power, thus allowing them to defend a greater amount of air space per fighter. The new missiles tested with the unit have an extremely high kill range and effectiveness level, allowing them to knock out many fighters before they have a chance to get close.

Production is to begin immediately.
